Fishing on the River Moy 🐟

Fishing in Foxford on the River Moy

The Moy has long been famous as Ireland's premier Salmon fishing river

It offers a wide variety of quality angling to suit all tastes and budgets. Most of the main Moy channel and some of its larger tributaries provide excellent spring Salmon and grilse fishing with both fly and bait. Sea trout are also abundant in the Moy

The main Moy channel is deep and up to forty meters wide in the middle and lower reaches. Huge numbers of Salmon are landed here each season. The average annual Salmon rod catches on the Moy over the last ten years is a staggering 7,362 fish.

The upper river has a different character and is more akin to a spate river in parts. The fish here can be superb and the pioneering angler can find excellent Salmon fishing in solitude

The River Moy estuary has large stocks of sea trout, some of which exceed four pounds, and which can be caught on fly and bait. The lower beats around Ballina and Foxford, and some locations on the upper river; also provide good sea trout fishing late in the season.
